Personality is the sum total of a person’s Time Line™, Meta Programs (the Mind Operating System), Values, Beliefs, Attitudes, Memories and Decisions. Personality is how a person behaves, talks, feels and wills that is unique to him in a given situation.
Memories are past experiences organized in a certain way around a certain subject . How we store our memories affects how we feel about our lives. Our past experiences determine who we are and how we act. The memories deeply affect a person’s perceptions and personality.
Time Line: Time Line is the memory coding of the brain. The memory organization is the language of the brain. How we store our memories is our brain’s way of coding the past, present, and future in a certain location in the brain. The coding and decoding are unique and that makes the difference. One can change a person’s memories in a short time with Time line Therapy TM. Time Line is a key to understand the personality.
Thoughts: The only things we can control in life are our thoughts which in turn decide our feelings and behavior. If we can manage our thoughts, we can control our life.
Perceptions: The problems in our life are ultimately the result of “what we perceive and how we react” and a shift in what we perceive and how we react combined with a changed attitude and better thoughts will result in a total change in the life scenario.
Emotions: Emotions are thoughts experienced as feelings by the body, as pleasant or unpleasant, exhibited verbally or non verbally. Thoughts trigger the brain to stimulate several hormones impacting the body positively or negatively, giving the sense of pleasure or displeasure, like and dislike. There follows a cascade of bodily changes, emotional distress, and health problems. Thoughts and emotions are two inseparable sides of the same coin. One does not exist in the absence of other.
Meta Programs: Meta Programs are the most unconscious organized mental shortcuts directing our behavior and decisions. The knowledge of Meta Programs creates a sense of self Awareness. Meta Programs are the mind’s operating system that interfaces the human body hardware to the mind software. Meta Programs are changeable and situation dependent though they are conditioned by habit. One who is self-aware is aware of his/her:
- Strengths and weaknesses
- Comfort zone
The Unconscious Mind
The Unconscious mind is the prime mover of human life working from behind. The unconscious mind rarely comes into consciousness and plays the sole role in the entire drama of human miseries, happiness, success, failures and so on.. The unconscious mind interacts with conscious mind in a symbolic language of its own and one who knows the language of the subconscious mind emerges winner as the sub conscious is the ‘goal getter’ wherein the conscious mind sets the goal. The conscious can do nothing farther. The conscious and subconscious mind integration happens when one converses in their symbolic language.
Right and left Brain
The right and left parts of the brain have specific special functions. Certain techniques bring in co ordination of both right and left parts of the brain maximising the output from an individual.
Emotional mastery is the ability to consciously control emotional responses and choosing the required set of emotions. Emotions can be chosen consciously or unconsciously. Emotional mastery is a conscious choice. You take charge of your emotions pro-actively rather than reacting to the life events and situations.
- The first essential step in Emotional mastery is Awareness- Mindfulness.
- Identification of the feeling
- Accepting the emotion
Mindfulness is a mental state of awareness of the self and surrounding and accepting own feelings, emotions, thoughts, attitude etc.
